Q: Craft beer - China's boomin' demand n two-way trade wth the world

A craft-beer boom with Chinese characteristics
Many craft breweries are foreign-run, but plenty are Chinese-owned too. It was foreigners who initially provided most business for Great Leap Brewing, a stalwart of Beijing’s craft scene, which set up in 2010 in a traditional courtyard down a dusty hutong (alleyway). Now 75% of its customers are locals, says Carl Setzer, its American brewmaster. Panda Brew, founded in Beijing by Pan Dinghao in 2013 with basic home-brewing equipment, recently began exporting to Britain.

China develops increasing taste for U.S. craft beer
“We started exporting to China last year, but it really picked up this year,” said Matthew Allred, Epic Brewing’s Communications Director. The company has already shipped 125 barrels of beer to China in 2017.
“The potential for growth in China especially as craft beer becomes more commonplace and people become more interested in it… it’s just going to be incredible,” he said.
Nebraska Brewing Company began exporting to China earlier this year.

China's drinking habits are changing, and that's a big opportunity for beverage makers
With the explosion in selection, some craft beer brands like Panda Brew, have started exporting their drinks.
In November this year, Panda Brew started sales in the U.K. It is also looking into entering other markets such as Canada, Japan and Australia, said Feng.

I have a friend in Yantai that set up a micro brewery in a restaurant similar to the Vancouver nightclub scene except the lady servers have no breast, the beer is not too bad, but China needs to stop the monarchy from economic colonialism for a brief period and clean up the tap water problem here if they expect to export craft beer to anyone.

I could see a chain of micro brewery pubs opening up if they filter the water from the source like all the starbucks do here in China, but unless its a western venture, you could not trust them to actually change the filters on the machine or use fake filters, Starbucks has the filters shipped in from America.

China's emerging middle class, with its disposable income and interest in western products, has embraced microbrews over watery lagers. The country's capital offers a wealth of drinking options, from giant brewpubs to tiny hidden gems.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
